Cytomegalovirus, also often labeled CMV, is a type of Herpes virus also
known (in humans) as human herpesvirus type 5, or HHV-5. It is in the
betaherpesvirinae subfamily of Herpes. The name means "cell very big virus".
CMV especially attacks salivary glands and may also be devastating or even
fatal to fetuses. CMV viruses are found in many mammal species, but
generally are specific only to that species.
